Terry “Beez” Bezer of Scuzz recently conducted an interview with guitarist Corey Beaulieu and guitarist/vocalist Matt Heafy of Florida metallers TRIVIUM. You can now watch the chat below.

TRIVIUM‘s new album, “Vengeance Falls”, made Top 10 chart debuts in Japan, Australia, Germany and Austria as well as a Top 15 debut in Canada and a Top 25 debut in the United Kingdom. This marks the acclaimed metallers second consecutive Top 15 debut in the U.S. and highest-career debuts around the globe — including a No. 2 debut in Japan.

“Vengeance Falls” sold 17,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The record — which was produced by David Draiman (DISTURBED, DEVICE) — arrived in stores on October 15, 2013 via Roadrunner.

TRIVIUM‘s previous CD, “In Waves”, opened with 22,000 units to land at No. 13 — the highest U.S. chart entry of the band’s career. The group’s 2008 effort, “Shogun”, premiered with just under 24,000 copies to debut at No. 23. The effort followed up “The Crusade”, which registered a first-week tally of 31,000 copies in October 2006 to enter the chart at No. 25.

TRIVIUM‘s “Strife” video was filmed in July 2013 at Studio One in Orlando and was directed by Ramon Boutviseth, who has previously worked with NONPOINT, DARKEST HOUR, INCUBUS and ALL THAT REMAINS, among others.

TRIVIUM recently finished touring North America with DEVILDRIVER.

Trivium will return with a new album later this year

Eyebrows were raised when it was revealed that Disturbed and Device frontman David Draiman would be sitting in the producer’s chair for the new Trivium album, but according to Matt Heafy, it might just be the best decision the Floridians have ever made.

“He was the most hands-on producer we’ve ever worked with,” Triv’s frontman tells Roadrunner. “And we’ve worked with some amazing people. I mean, Jason Suecof and Trivium got their start working together. We’ve done so many records together that I think we can’t do any more; we’ve learned everything we could possibly learn from each other.

“We were able to work with Nick Raskulinecz on Shogun, who we learned a lot from; we were able to work with one of our heroes of metal production and engineering, Colin Richardson, on In Waves, which went great. And everyone’s always been fairly hands-on with us, saying, Hey, we want to do this together. But David was even more hands-on, in a great way.

We looked at it as a partnership, as all of us working together to make the best songs possible. And with David, he had input on everything. What was amazing was he never wanted to cross the line — he never wanted to change who we were. That was a big thing he said early on, “I want this to still very much be Trivium, but we’re gonna take it to the next level.” He had things from — not lyrical changes, but lyrical suggestions — ways to help further the point of what the song was. That was something I’d never had before; I’d never had a producer say, “What are you saying in this song?”

Matt Heafy and David Draiman. Now BFFs

“And when he first asked me that, I gave him the same answer I was giving for interviews for all of In Waves, which is “Well, this is interpretable,” and he was like “Yeah, yeah, that’s fine,” but he felt like it should go this way or that way, and I’ve never had that before, someone who was able to help me look at what the point of the song was and help me narrow down the message I was trying to convey.”

The new Trivium album drops later this year via Roadrunner.
